Armando was very prompt in answering my emails and coordination went on smoothly. We made arrangement for an airport pickup and the driver was there when we arrived. The staff was very friendly and gave us information - what to see in the limited time frame, only there for the afternoon, and where to eat - in Arequipa. The hotel... More

I had the opportunity of staying here for two weeks while backpacking in Peru. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The hotel offers unique experiences such as Spanish school and Peruvian cooking classes. This is definitely a nice place to relax, especially in the garden and enjoy the Peruvian way of life. The staff even went the extra mile to... More

Great location. In a quiet neighborhood, but only a 7 min walk to the Plaza de Armas. Front desk staff was really nice and accommodating. The hotel let us store our extra luggage during our 3 day Colca Canyon trek. Only downside was the limited continental breakfast. If you want extras like fruit or eggs you have to pay extra.... More

This was a great place to relax and unwind after traveling to Arequipa from Cisco and Macchu Picchu, which is physically grueling. Sitting in the sunny garden at Casa de Avila made us feel like we were on vacation, instead of running a marathon. Staff were super friendly and accommodating, and the cooking class here was a lot of fun.

Very well located, 5' walking from the main square, with very comfy rooms and a private bathroom this place is ideal for a stay in Arequipa. In addition to that the place has a very pleasant garden you will enjoy every morning for your breakfast. A place to consider when planning to go to Arequipa.

Can't recommend this place enough. Great rooms, lovely courtyard, awesome staff, and phenomenal cooking classes! Trip adviser demands that I write 200 characters, so I'm just filling up space right now. But really, great hotel. Can't go wrong staying here!

We really loved this hotel. There is a huge grassy area for relaxation or play. There are students studying Spanish here, so we didn't think it was a good place for a soccer match or something, but the kids did play a little here. It was a lovely place to have breakfast. Breakfast is included and is simple but good.... More

Thank you . We do love families and our multiple rooms are comfortable and spacious. Yes, we dont have soccer games in the garden, having flowers in a desert like Arequipa is a miracle and takes lots of care. But we have a game room with table tennis and fusball table for families to enjoy. Say hello to your kids,... More
